Military Aircraft Around Las Vegas, Aircraft Around Las Vegas

Identification: The Thunderbirds are a precision aerial demonstration team who fly six F-16C (single seat) and two F-16D (two seat) Fighting Falcon jet fighters. F-16s are recognized by the short, conical snout, a single air intake under the fuselage, triangular wings that are absolutely straight across the back edge, and the single, vertical tail fin. They also have two rocket guides (or rockets) projecting ahead of the wing tips. Two C and D models are recognized by the length of the clear canopy. Thunderbird jets are painted with the team's Thunderbird logo underneath and white with red on the tail fin above.

Mission: The U.S. Air Force Air Demonstration Squadron, the Thunderbirds perform precision aerial maneuvers demonstrating the capabilities of Air Force high performance aircraft to people around the world. The squadron exhibits the professional qualities the Air Force develops in the people who fly, maintain, and support these aircraft. Every year, the Thunderbirds put on a spectacular show during the Aviation Nation Airshow at Nellis Air Force Base.

Characteristics: see the F-16 page.
